Midtown, Wynwood, Downtown, Brickell, Coconut Grove, Civic Center, Little Havana and I forgot to add Coral Way. Thats all just in the city limits of Miami, there are quite a few more throughout the area.

I know Uptown Houston was big but DAMN, is it that big it look's like it should be Houston's main part but it's not, and you can include the cities that are within the same county too, and if your city streches threw other counties you cant include the one in the other county, ex Raleigh streches into Durham County, but you cant not say Wake County has 2 skyline's.

I put two....I guess you could count Metairie as a second skyline. Metairie does have two towers over 400', one over 350', and about 5 others above 150'. And then you have Downtown New Orleans. But, then again, Metairie is not New Orleans proper, although only about 8 miles seperate the two skylines.

For Charlotte, I'd say one (Uptown) and a half (South Park).

Houston has more than just 3 skylines. There's Downtown, the Galleria, the Texas Medical District, the Energy Corridor, Greenspoint, Greensway, and the 610-TC Jester area also has a few skyscrapers.

OKC has Downtown, the Northwest Expressway, the Heights (which is made up of church towers and universities and a few eclectic high-rises), and the Medical District. Norman also has a small skyline.

Tulsa is much more a "city of multiple skylines." Downtown Tulsa is huge, and the south side/Midtown area is just chock full of sections that have a few good high-rises.

Houston's separate skylines:

Downtown (my favorite view is from by Enron Field)


Galleria/Uptown


Texas Medical District


Greenspoint


Museum District

Greenway Plaza


I can't find good pics of the 610/TC Jester area and the Energy Corridor which is lined with a lot of skyscrapers..

LA has multiple skylines, more than seven in fact.

they have skylines all over the place.

westwood, hollywood, downtown, uptown, burbank, and many more


anyways, nashville has two, midtown and downtown, the gulch is burgeoning, so i would venture to say 3 in that case

You're missing Buckhead, Cumberland/Vinings, Northlake, Emory/Decatur, North Atlanta, Alpharetta, and Kennesaw.

Sandy Springs and Perimeter are the same: I'm not sure about Lawrenceville. Don't you mean Duluth/Gwinnett Place?

I had no idea Tulsa had that many skylines. It really is a mini-Dallas or Houston in a way!
